We stayed in this ryokan for the last two nights of our Japan trip. Everyone was really friendly at our Arrival and even though we arrived at noon, the room was ready for us. We were also handed several guides about Osaka. As often written by travellers, the Hotel is not new but even more cozy. We had a room in 4th Floor with a view to the small river. We had a nice view but at the same time it wasn’t too noisy. The room was very large in size. The balcony is not open – similar to a winter garden – but you can open all windows and enjoy the view. Beds are on the Floor, as you would expect in a ryokan. Furthermore there are chairs in the winter garden and in the bedroom as well. The TV is an older tube television Modell but we didn’t use it at all. The WIFI Connection was great. As I already said, the employees were all very friendly. Before our departure day, I asked if it was ok to leave at 6am already (as there is a curfew I wasn’t sure if we were able to leave that early). We received an offer for wake up calls and we were asked if we had a JR ticket and at what time we wanted to leave. 5 minutes later back in the room our doorbell rang and several Train Connections were under the door with Information written how to get to the airport that early, very nice!!There is a subway Station nearby, about 3 minutes to walk and the JR Namba Station to get to Nara is a 15 minutes walk away. In Dotombori but also in the whole area there are plenty of places to eat and drink.
Stayed at Kaneyoshi Ryokan, Namba Dotombori, Osaka.
